A journal of my experiences with breast cancer to inform those who are interested and to help any one else who might have just been diagnosed.

Three and 1/2 Year Checkup

I went to my oncologist for my 3 1/2 year check-up which came at a good time as I mysteriously had a period after 3 years of not having any. This alarmed my oncologist as the cancer fighting drug I am now taking is only effective if one is in menopause. He wants me either to go back to using Tamoxifen or he wants me to take shots once a month to make sure I am in menopause. He also wants me to get checked out by my gynecologist to make sure the bleeding doesn't indicate something serious.


  1. Oh no, I'll be praying that it's nothing serious.

  2. Please keep us updated. I cannot imagine how these things could rattle one's nerves. You are ALWAYS in my thoughts and prayers and will continue to be so.

    God bless!

  3. I can't believe it has been that long!! Prayers for a all being well!

  4. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope this is not a set back.
    Blessings, Dawn

  5. Likewise, I do hope this isn't a set back. I will keep you in my prayers, and do let us know when you hear anything.
